I have lurked here for years but have recently just registered.
My Regards to the OP for starting this thread.
Pertaining to "Sociopaths"
Unfortunately, being a victim, I can not advise really about why these "sociopaths" exist. Some claim their "made" while others claim their
"born" I can really care less, I can really only "speculate". So too, at the end of the day it seems that even professionals, can only
"speculate". ( I mean absolutely no disrespect to the OP as they have stated they are a professional in this area)
In my opinion, those inquiries do little to prevent you or a loved one or anyone from becoming a "victim".
My own personal dealings with such "predators" nearly cost me and mine our very lives. The scars are deep and will remain forever.
However, I have learned much as to how to "win" the "game" they force you to "play", as one poster who claims to be such stated:
"I view mostly everything as a game. Really, as the only game that matters and I want to play it well"
It is exactly this to these "clever animals", a "game" and anything in it, including you or the ones you care about are "expendable".
I believe another poster claiming to be such would advise victims to just "get over it", blame yourself and get on with your life or something along
Amusing to say the least, how beneficial it would be for predators if all victims took that advise. Those who do may find themselves at risk for the
"However even as I was was negatively affecting someone I would make it "their fault". This allowed me to use this person at a further date if need
These creatures are "inter-species predators" simply put.
I am a first time poster so I will get to the point:
The little "white lie" as it were or the "secrets" that you share with these sociopaths, are the tools which over all allows them to manipulate
and control the victim. This comes after the "grooming" stage upon where the victim over a long period of time, "if need be" is stripped of their
own core beliefs and pre-existing morals and values and such. A sociopath will then upload "your" new system of values and such, which will contrast
infinitely from what was present before, in fact it will mirror/mimic the predators own.
We have seen on ATS and other such sites as "wikileaks" that EXPOSURE is what makes corruption and tyranny squirm like no other weapon in the
arsenal. EXPOSURE = TRUTH
"Truth" = "Exposure" to these predators is not unlike silver to a "liken" or sun light to a "blood sucker", It makes them more than a little
uncomfortable and if the truth is used wisely will cause the predator to run , literally cut and run, but only after playing their card(s) to the last
possible second. In my experience at the end of the day the predator was a coward, and more insecure by far than any of its victims. The whole
grandiose delusion of superiority is just as fake as their fabricated intentions. To the women who fall victim to the whole "Bad Boy Syndrome" you
may want to research works along the lines as "How to get laid 101" There are entire sections that exploit a females inert maternal instincts and
other such trash as how to create intrigue and use sympathy ploys, using the unconditional love ploy, simply put these works teach us "How to be a
predator" or "How to create a compliant victim" indeed, the whole status qua seems to reflect and advocate such rubbish, but that is a much bigger
fish to fry.
If you are a VICTIM please consider the following actions if you wish to cut ties with a predator.
Note: (The order in which you follow these steps may vary but whats important is all steps listed are utilized)
1.) Re-establish ties with those closest to you, no doubt you have isolated your self via a result of the predators control and manipulation tactics.
You must re-build a network of love and support.
2.) This may hurt, but come completely clean with what has happened, every detail if need be and it will HURT. It will hurt you and those you love but
your honesty and the truth of which, is ESSENTIAL to your survival and or the survival/reincarnation of past or current relationships. (spouse,
children, parents, friends)
By becoming completely clean, you have taken a major step, which is a major blow to the predators ability to further terrorize you into compliance.
Threatening to expose actions or events that YOU were manipulated into or becoming compliant with are now null and void and a useless tool, no longer
viable. (nothing to expose)
3.) Sadly as was in my case, after educating my self, I had to frequently educate those who were utterly shocked by what I told them, there is loads
of documentation and a quagmire of data related to what others have been through as a result of these "clever predators". Know that you are NOT
alone. Get on Google and do some research. (Before our experience I knew little of this percentage of the population that thrives on feeding upon
4.)Once you have hopefully re-established ties and built a network of protection via loved ones, friends and or family.You can begin to heal, and
fight back! I would also suggest seeking out not only other victims, but specifically, victims of the same individual "parasite" Strength in numbers
as they say. I found in my experience communication with other victims did much in the way of healing. Also in my situation, I found others more than
willing to continue the exposure tactic long after the events. Thus alerting others to what they may endure if they think they can "change" or
"save" these monsters.
5.) Save every document, every text, e-mail, phone recording, anything which the predator has sent you for any reason via threats or communication of
any sort. If possible, recover communications pertaining to the love bombs, self pity sympathy ploys, and other communications you received from the
"grooming Stage". More often than not, they will cringe with defeat if you can expose their perverse beliefs and habits on a public scale.(They lose
all credibility) and thus have a hard time portraying the "Knight in Tinfoil" " "I'm a good person" "I'm here to save you" "I'm a victim"
As I exit I will share with you what I and other "victims" have done.
I((we) have posted on any site this freak uses as a tool to hunt, his full name, his public criminal record, his delinquent parental status, made
public his own communications to me and mine and others (with their consent) a list of other victims as well as the STD"S and other infections and
parasites this "clever animal" is host to. I(we) have saved God knows how many others and will continue to do so. (think "anonymous" on a smaller
Indeed other victims (strength in numbers) of this parasite have followed suit and have contributed to the cause with vigilance and received a feeling
of "closure" and have rediscovered and regained there "self respect" and so too, their "identity of self".
I have challenged the predator(s) to confront me in any setting "legal or otherwise " to defend what they have done, or seek charges against myself
for "exposing them". They just keep running however. If some feel the exposure tactic is cruel, I can only say the "TRUTH is VIRAL" and "Karma is
There is a definitive line that separates "character assassination" and the "exposure of a lack thereof"
In my opinion, It is not what they "have" that enables them to feed on others, it is what they "lack", that being: honor, sympathy, respect for
others, virtue, honesty, empathy, .....simply put, emotions and attributes that make us more than just "clever animals".
If you have attracted a predator of the most daring type however, and fear for your or your loved ones lives, I'd suggest utilizing the second
"Better to have one and not need it than to need it and not have it"
As to why others become seemingly accomplices, I can only guess, mob mentality? The whole I wasn't the only one rationalization perhaps... who
knows, but I know this:
"Bad company corrupts good character"
